Profound, solid, dense and with a pleasant fruitfulness.
Wine Advocate 88 points - So let us commence with recent releases. The 2010 Termes is raised in 30% new French oak for 16 months before bottling in June 2012. It has a soft, mint-tinged bouquet with light dried rose petal tones. The palate is medium-bodied with a spicy entry, prickly red berry fruit, cedar and graphite originating from the oak. The finish is quite sharp with a dash of white pepper lingering on the aftertaste. This is a perfectly pleasant Toro red. Drink 2014-2018. (Apr 2013)
Termes shows Toro’s quintessential fruit: Ripe but fresh, with velvety texture and lively structure, this wine leaves a general impression of balance and elegance.
